Aston Villa are reportedly not willing to meet with Chelsea’s asking price for striker Tammy Abraham after the Blues remained adamant that they were not going to accept anything less than £30 million for the England international striker. Abraham has long been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge and has been carefully exploring his options in a bid to accept the best offer available to him.

Premier League club Aston Villa remain at the front of the queue of the clubs that are interested in the 23-year-old forward who is now set to call time on his Blues career after being unable to convince manager Thomas Tuchel that he has what it takes to lead the club’s attack. Timo Werner is the favored Chelsea front an and the German international star has been getting more game time than the club’s other strikers combined.

Alongside Villa, Crystal Palace, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Everton have all registered an interest in Abraham and it remains to be seen which club’s offer he will be opting for in the coming weeks. Villa are strongly in the race to win his signature as they have already had the player in their books before when he was on loan at Villa Park from Chelsea.

Dean Smith, Aston Villa manager, is said to be a huge admirer of the young striker and would like to have him in his team for next season. Toward the end of the just-concluded campaign, Smith stressed the need for Villa to have better players in their squad as they aim to push themselves further up the table in a bid to have a better finish next season than they did this campaign.

Abraham’s ideal choice is to join a Champions League team but if none tables a bid for him anytime soon, then Aston Villa could be the next stop for him.
